Jets Inactives Today

Inactives: Vernon a no-Gho

December 14, 2008

Vernon Gholston, take a seat.

The Jets' top draft pick, the sixth overall choice, was declared inactive for today's game against the Bills - a mildly surprising development. Gholston has been a major disappointment, and this confirms how far he has dropped in the eyes of the organization. Some have felt that he should've been inactive weeks ago, that the club kept him active because it didn't want to admit the obvious.

Gholston was not listed on the injury report, so this appears to be a coaching decision.

In essence, Gholston was replaced on the 45-man roster by TE Bubba Franks, who had been inactive in the previous seven games.

As expected, WR David Clowney is active, replacing injured WR Brad Smith (concussion).

Other inactives:

PK Mike Nugent

QB Brett Ratliff (3rd QB)

CB Drew Coleman (awful game last week)

S J.R. Reed

CB David Barrett

LB Jason Trusnik

For the Bills, injured QB Trent Edwards (groin) is the No. 3 QB. J.P. Losman will start, with Gibran Hamdan as the No. 2.

Vernon Gholston leads the Jets inactives list

That's correct, the No. 6 overall pick is inactive for today's game. Based on production, a move that probably should have happened earlier. Anyway, that's the headline, followed by, as has been speculated on since last week, Brad Smith being sidelined because of a concussion. David Clowney takes his place.

The Jets inactives:

Vernon Gholston, Mike Nugent, Brett Ratliff (3rd QB), Brad Smith, Drew Coleman, J.R. Reed, David Barrett, Jason Trusnik

For the Bills:

Trent Edwards (3rd QB), RB Xavier Omon, CB Jabari Greer, CB Dustin Fox, OL Jason Whittle, OL Demtrius Bell, TE Jonathan Stupar.
